A distinctive 8-story residential building is likely to go up in Kew Gardens that would replace two traditional red-brick houses.
The developer filed plans with the Buildings Dept. yesterday that would see a 32-unit structure go up on corner of the Curzon Road and 116th Road near Forest Park . The real estate publication New York Yimby was first to publish the renderings.
The building will encompass 83-61 116th Street and the neighboring lot at 116-02 Curzon Road.
Bluarch Architecture is behind the design that takes on an art-deco style.
The building will feature large rounded balconies made of cast-in-place concrete. Another part of the building, which will be located at 83-61 116th Street, will have a variegated balcony pattern facing floor-to-ceiling glass.
The building will replace two existing homes. A demolition permit has yet to be filed.
The developer is listed as Vincenzo Maimone, of Curzon Development LLC.
